davao april 2015 part one: fleeting

Posted on: July 12, 2015

just wanted to document my davao trip last april and it was like coming back home… it’s my third visit to davao and there’s something oddly satisfying in being able to go back to places you’ve gone to and see the familiar and the new.

this is also the first time i travelled with people from work who don’t exactly share the same sentiments as me, in terms of travelling, charot. to expound, they’re simply happy drinking and smoking and eating around while rolling in bed. on a side note, it was cute observing their packing and hygiene habits… for instance, hiding a dozen bottles (probably more…) of liquor is kind of a special skill, haha.

this is also the first time i didn’t take pixxors that much for some reason, and so just grabbed whatever i could find in fesbuten, lulz. i stole the ones below from liiya and hanee.

we headed over to samal island on our one weekend for our teambuilding and we got stranded in the middle of the sea, haha. another boat towed us though and we got to our destination. my memories of that samal island trip aren’t that clear anymore, i just remember stepping on some corals, getting a stiff neck from riding a habal-habal, and seeing lots of gays on the ferry. adventure pa more, haha.


when we got back to the city, we lounged around sm lanang, because for the love of buddha, our hotel had forsaken us … check-in was at 3:00 pm. on a side note, i was finally able to eat cake.

on our last day in davao, we dropped by aldevinco, which my companions kept mispronouncing, to get some souvenirs, and hane bought us to the old glamour crabs buffet. tapos umuwi na kami sa manila, haha.

yun lang muna.
